STATE FORECAST: Current Situation:
An upper trough and an associated surface trough will move into western
Queensland this evening and should then sweep east over the state on Friday.
The northerly wind flow and patchy cloud ahead of the trough will result in a
warmer night for much of the southern half of the state. The trough will
generate some showers or patchy rain over the Maranoa and Warrego and
southeastern interior with its passage overnight tonight into Friday morning.
The trough will then weaken as it moves into southeast coastal districts before
shifting offshore into the southern Coral Sea late Friday. A high pressure
system moving east over New South Wales will then extend a much drier, colder
air mass into much of Queensland over the weekend in the wake of the trough,
with widespread morning frosts returning to central and southern districts.
Outlook for Friday: Showers or patchy rain moving east over the Maranoa and Warrego, southern central interior and southeastern interior with a trough through the morning. Rainfall totals will be generally 5mm or less, though some isolated totals are possible over this, particularly near the higher ground. Just the slight chance of showers or patchy light rain moving over southeastern districts east of the Great Dividing Range and developing near the central coast. Some cloud will extend over northern districts though with little to no rainfall expected. The slight chance of light early frost on the Granite Belt. A cooler day in the west with fresh and gusty south to southwesterly winds and possible dust haze. Light to moderate southeasterly winds in the far north. Moderate to fresh and gusty north to northwesterly winds elsewhere ahead of a southwesterly change.
Outlook for Saturday: The surface trough will shift east off the Capricornia, central and southern tropical coasts in the early hours, with the slight chance of a shower with the trough's passage. A high pressure system over New South Wales will then extend a dry and cold air mass into much of Queensland, with just the slight chance of a light shower near the northeast tropical coast in an onshore wind flow. Minimum temperatures will drop again due to the drier air mass and clear skies, with widespread morning frosts expected over the central and southern inland.
Outlook for Sunday: The high pressure system will most likely move slowly east towards the Tasman Sea, maintaining a ridge and a dry air mass over much of Queensland. The dry conditions and clear skies will combine to lead to a very cold morning over the central and southern inland with widespread frosts. An onshore wind flow will result in the slight to medium chance of showers about the northeast tropical coast. Winds will also tend a bit more onshore about the southern coast with the slight chance of a shower moving onto the coast. Fine and sunny conditions are expected elsewhere.
Outlook for Monday: The high pressure system will move further east into the Tasman Sea whilst a belt of high pressure will again become established over central Australia, maintaining a dry air mass over much of Queensland. Some showers will occur about the northeast tropical coasts in an onshore wind flow. Fine and mostly sunny conditions are expected elsewhere, with early frosts again likely over inland parts of western, central and southern districts. Maximum temperatures will rise over western and southern parts of the state ahead of a surface trough approaching the far southwest.
Outlook for Tuesday until Thursday: The high pressure system will move slowly east northeast into the southern Coral Sea during the outlook period, with other high pressure centres developing over southern Australia. This will maintain a dry air mass over much of the Queensland interior. Some showers will occur about the central and northeast tropical coasts in an onshore wind flow. An upper level trough will possibly move into the Queensland interior on Wednesday, though with no rainfall expected due to the dry air mass persisting. The upper trough should then move through central and southeastern Queensland on Thursday, possibly producing the odd shower though there is some uncertainty associated with its movement. Minimum temperatures will increase through the outlook period, with morning frost areas largely contracting to the Granite Belt and Maranoa. Maximum temperatures will also rise to be above the July average over much of the state, particularly western and southern districts.
